problem is looming over capitol hill, and hundreds of thousands of federal government workers. with a new budget deal, the automatic cuts known as sequestration will go into effect next month. last night cbs news anchor scott pelly asked president obama if sequestration would push america back into a recession. the president said he didn't know that answer, but the current situation is unacceptable. >> washington cannot continually operate under a cloud of crisis. that freezes up consumers. it gets businesses worried. we can't afford these self- inflicted wounds. and there's a way for us to solve these budget problems in a responsible way through a balanced approach that the vast majority of people agree with. if we do that, there's no reason why we can't have really strong growth in 2013. but we can't have washington dysfunction getting in the way. >> by the end of this week the

temperatures in the 30s, even the 40s in the southern suburbs. late tonight another disturbance will bring us light snow showers with a trace to perhaps an inch. those areas that get an inch, hagerstown, frederick, our northern neighbors. our mountains will get quite a bit west of the continental divide. here's a look at your day planner. temperatures in the 20s. we'll be in the low 30s by 11:00. mid- to upper 30s here in town. we'll hit 36 at 3:00. kind of hold there for 5:00. could be a few flurries at 5:00. a better chance of light snow and flurries will be after dark. had a disturbance yesterday with lot of wet flurries, snow showers, some moderate snow showers even came through but that thing is now well east of us. the next disturbance just starting to come into the picture. it's near chicago right now but northern indiana, northwestern ohio seeing a little bit of snow right now. temperatures are down to 25 in springfield. haymarket is 26. 25 lauer. bowie this morning with 25 in waldorf and in town we're looking outside our michael &
5:16 am
son weather camera. the jefferson memorial. if you're on my facebook page, i put a picture up yesterday, a little dusting of snow. kind of a neat picture. a good looking morning here in d.c. as we widen out the shot. 28 degrees with a north, northwesterly wind at 7. feels like 21. the dew point only 9. so the air is quite dry. that's one reason i think whatever we see isn't going to amount to much. arctic air, check this out. 31 below now at international falls. so this white, pinkish area, that's the real arctic stuff. chicago 21. eight cold but look at the rest of the country. there's no real cold air except for extreme northern minnesota. that tells me we're not going to see anything too bad here over the next week. in fact, the clouds are coming more west to east across the country and the northern stream, the southern stream. without any big dips, the real cold stays up in canada. we'll see a warming trend to some extent. look at the snow breaking out
5:17 am
in chicago. moving into northwest indiana. they're expecting 2 to 5 inches of snow in chiland. that could delay any flights you have this morning. we should have enough cold here for plenty of lake snows. the mountains are going to get hit hard. garrett county 6 to 10 inches of snow. it will be snowing tonight. we could see passing flurries and snow showers with us. i know the computer is showing a mix of rain and snow. i'm thinking generally light snow, showers, just not adding up to much. tomorrow we're back under partly sunny skies. here's a look at your forecast. this afternoon 36. 40 down south with late flurries and snow showers into the first part of tonight. tonight's low 25 to 30. tomorrow 43. so a milder tuesday. about the same on wednesday, although we'll add a few degrees into the mid and upper 40s. on thursday increasing clouds, 47. friday showers, 48. then a seasonably mild weekend with highs in the upper 40s to low 50s. let's go to monika samtani. we've got a lot of folks who

5:23 am
included a comeback, a power outage, a beyonce half time show but it ended with a gold line stand when the baltimore ravens sent out linebacker ray lewis as champion. >> when your backs are against the wall and they say we have three more plays to get on this goal line. if we all do our jobs, they won't get in. to stand up like thark it's a testament of what we've been through and how much trust we had all year long. that was probably one of the most amazing goal line stances i've ever been a part of. >> ray said, on the podium, how could it be any other way than that. we said to our team many times after many of these games, it wasn't perfect, it wasn't pretty, but it was us. >> he just wanted us to feel what it was like to win this thing. he felt it and he wanted to

5:32 am
while police cameras and the department's helicopter watched from up above. police officers who war tracked by the department's gps were sent to a few rowdy spots. fans rocked a car. you just saw that. and officers cleared crowds who were looting 57-eleven -- looting a 7-eleven. good news, though. there were no injuries or major public safety incidents. however, we can tell you around 2:00 a.m., firefighters worked to put out a car fire on the jones falls expressway. we don't know just yet if that was linked to the celebrations last night, but we can tell you for sure the jfx was shut down because of those massive crowds. andrea, back to you. >> thank you, delia. today a virginia senate committee will debate a bill to toughen the state's laws on texting while driving. right now texting while driving carries just a $20 fine in the commonwealth, but it's a secondary offense meaning you have to be pulled over for something else first. a bill going through the

5:35 am
in 2010. male secretaries made almost $40,000. that's $6,000 more. most of the remaining top five jobs for women weren't on the list back in 1950. number two position in 2010 was cashier followed by teacher, nurse, and nursing aide. top job for men in 2010? truck driver. >> who knew. >> it's amazing, secretary still number one. >> amazing. thank you, jazz. do you have a favorite commercial from last night? find out if you agree with the ad meter ratings coming up. >> still ahead, we'll meet the t-shirt vendor who's been sharing the ravens spirit around the clock for the
